The most important muscle in the body is the heart.
Yet, many people who workout seem to think they don't need to do cardio. Cardiovascular (or cardio) exercise has numerous health benefits. In addition to burning calories and lowering your body fat, it will strengthen your heart and lungs. Since heart disease is the leading cause of premature death for both men and women, cardiovascular fitness is very important and should never be overlooked.
Just begin your conditioning by picking an activity and work on exercising intensely enough to raise your heart rate and keep it elevated. And remember, the heart is the most important muscle in your body, so treat it that way. Think of it as an investment in yourself.
Still, the best benefit yet is that group exercise and Fitness on Demand classes are FREE to our members!
